Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will be in attendance at this weekend’s Super Bowl in Las Vegas, according to reports.
The Duke of Sussex made a shock appearance at the NFL Honors awards night on Thursday, at the Resorts World Theater in Las Vegas.
He attended the event after jetting across the pond to visit his father, King Charles, who was diagnosed with cancer.
It was discovered by doctors when the monarch was being treated for an enlarged prostate, but his specific diagnosis is unknown.
Now Fox News reports his youngest son will be sticking around in Sin City for the big game on Sunday evening.
It also emerged last night that Harry is expected to return to Britain in May for a service at St Paul’s Cathedral to mark the tenth anniversary of the Invictus Games, while it was claimed Charles and Sarah Ferguson were supporting each other through their illness by exchanging heartfelt letters.

It is believed Harry saw Charles for around 45 minutes before going back to the States
At the awards on Thursday, Harry grinned as he handed the Walter Payton Man of the Year award to Pittsburgh Steelers footballer Cameron Heyward, but he failed to mention his Charles in his speech.
‘Really love how you stole Rugby from us,’ Harry said.
He then joked about the minor differences, such as passing it forward in football, instead of backward as in Rugby. Or how the NFL needs a break every 15 seconds of play.
‘All you guys do on and off the field is truly remarkable. You are role models for millions in the way you carry yourselves and in the way you give back,’ Harry said.
‘I’m in shock. That’s Prince Harry,’ Heyward joked when he walked up on stage to accept the prize.
The Duke, 39, flew into London on a ten-hour commercial British Airways flight from Los Angeles to Heathrow on Tuesday and arrived at the royal residence at 2.42pm.
He then spent around 45 minutes chatting with his father, which is thought to be their first proper contact in 15 months.
A palace source indicated to The Times that Harry and the King’s meeting was brief because Charles was tired from a procedure on Monday.
It is believed that the royal did not see his estranged brother and heir to the throne Prince William, or sister-in-law Kate, who is recovering from her abdominal surgery and is on extended leave.
‘William has shown today that he has disowned Harry, he doesn’t want to know him, and he probably doesn’t even like him anymore. Harry is just not part of his life,’ royal expert Jennie Bond told DailyMail.com.

‘That rift is so deep now, and that has been shown by Harry being here and them not meeting, so deep that I really do wonder if it can ever, ever be mended.’
Jennie Bond, royal expert, told Ok! that William didn’t want to take on extra responsibilities’ while Kate Middleton recovers from surgery and is going through a ‘scary time’ following the King’s diagnosis.
She explained: ‘This is not a time in which he wanted to take on extra responsibilities, and it’s not a time when he wanted really to contemplate the fact that one day in the very foreseeable future he is going to be a monarch.
‘This is a time in his life where we know when he just wants to be a hands on dad and a very supportive husband. He’ll feel somewhat besieged by his wife being ill and now his father having cancer – this is a scary time for him.’
He traveled without his two young children Prince Archie, four, and Princess Lilibet, two.
It was their first formal meeting in person since the late Queen Elizabeth II’s funeral in September 2022.
The father and son had a ‘brief meeting’ before the King and Camilla were driven to Buckingham Palace where a helicopter was waiting to take them back to Sandringham.
Harry, who has been estranged from his father then quickly jetted back to LA and was in Vegas the following day.
For his journey back to the States, Harry was spotted in Heathrow’s exclusive Windsor Suite as he prepared to fly back at around 2pm that afternoon.
Harry is expected to return to Britain in May for a service at St Paul’s Cathedral to mark the tenth anniversary of the Invictus Games.
Meanwhile, Meghan Markle was pictured beaming as she was snapped driving near her $14m Montecito home just hours before Prince Harry returned home.
The duchess, 42, looked relaxed from behind the wheel of her Range Rover in a baseball cap and dark, oversized sunglasses, and sipped from a coffee mug as she drove along.
